Live and let Fly

You may have heard of many episodes related to misfortunes during SpiceJet flights in recent months.

SpiceJet is having a callous time. The company has had a complete meltdown. In the previous month, the low-cost airline dealt with nearly 9 safety-related problems. A weather gauge malfunctioned, which made it difficult for pilots to determine whether they were flying in calm air or choppy seas on one occasion, and an engine failed on another.

Everything has turned out badly.

When they conducted a surprise audit as a follow-up, they found that 25 life jackets from a flight from Mumbai to Srinagar were missing.

In this sense, the airline is incorrect, but that does not change the fact that lives of anyone aboard being at stake. The first of several serious issues is that airline firms are dealing with a significant problem with bird strikes. It must be resolved.

But is there a solution to this issue that we may use? - We can, yes.

As there is a significant likelihood of a collision on the nose of the aircraft, we can carefully place proximity sensors there or over the aircraft's surface area. Our sensors will sense the danger. According to the plan, if a bird approaches the nose and poses a real threat to the aircraft, proximity sensors would detect the distance and fire an incredibly high energy laser beam to either redirect the bird's path or cause it to perish from heat. However, if this is certain, the threat would vanish. (See Picture)

Animal or bird activists will undoubtedly question the treatment of birds. It would be absurd to suggest that, considering that 120 to 150 passengers' lives are at stake. Only when there is danger, will this bird burning take place; it won't happen every day.

As an innovator, this idea is one of several that I strive to persuade industries to adopt in order to make things possible. I advise all airline businesses to give it some thought. If they decide that this technology can protect their airline from any collision hazard, we can discuss the intricacies of this technology and how to put it into practice.

I am disseminating this information via ICT Connect magazine; it is all about the potential of sensors and laser technology.
